Perks of living on a landed property
Published on: Monday, July 15, 2019

BUYING a property comes with a myriad of questions and decisions, including the common dilemma of choosing between a landed property or high-rise.

From the obvious space factor to that much needed peace of mind, here are five benefits of living on a landed property.

Larger space

Undeniably, a landed property offers homeowners the type of space that can be limited in apartments and condominiums. 

For example, a growing family or family with ageing parents may need a bigger space as you require more room to accommodate each loved one’s needs.

Also instead of using a claustrophobic corner to do yoga, landed homes that come with a yard or garden will provide you a comfortable and conducive space to carry out your fitness activities. 

Landed homes in that respect, have the upper hand when more square footage is what your lifestyle choices and family needs call for.

Higher resale value

Typically, real estate experts say landed property tends to appreciate in the long run but of course, this by and large depends on the location, which is key in any property investment. 

Pundits advice investors to retain their property for at least five years before a homeowner sells in order to yield a higher return of investment.

You’re in control of maintaining your property

Landed property owners take full responsibility of their home’s maintenance which means it’s entirely in the hands of owners to keep their houses in tip top shape.

Before you scoff at the extra elbow grease and adding contractors to your contact list, bear in mind that while the maintenance for apartments and condos are taken care of by the building’s management, this is only achievable with a competent management team.

A poorly maintained building caused by inept management could result in your building being devalued. As the saying goes, if you want something done right, do it yourself.

Peace and quiet

Our cities today are fast-growing and becoming increasingly congested which may not always be ideal for peace of mind. 

Properties located further away from the city promises respite from the hustle and bustle of the city without having to isolate yourself.

Look out for developments that are connected to major highways to ease your commute to work.

Safe haven for your loved ones

Want to live in a landed property but worry about the lack of security compared to a high rise? 

Gated and guarded homes are a popular choice among home hunters who want a safe neighbourhood, particularly those with children.

Gated and guarded neighbourhoods are designed with proper borders and come with security guards to keep an eye on the movement of visitors in the community to help prevent crime.

Safety is paramount to every homeowner. 

ensure residents’ safety and peace of mind, each neighbourhood is secured with respective guardhouses. Other security features include anti-climb fencing, perimeter cameras and security guard patrol.
